Art in Halland

Work for knowledge and education in the field of art.
The goals have been set on the basis of Halland’s Culture Plan and have no mutual ranking.
Support and cooperation
Art in Halland works with development within the field of visual arts in Halland. This is done in cooperation with artists and the different towns in Halland; ranging from politicians, council administration, various associations and the parts of society interested in art. Meetings for visual artists are continuously arranged. Art in Halland also runs the “Art Network for Institutions in Halland” which meets regularly. This includes officials from cultural institutions in the region.
At Art in Halland, we work with national and international exchange programmes through grants and Artist in Residence.
The residency scholarships are aimed at visual artists with a connection to Halland and there is an annual application process. The purpose of these grants is to give the artists an opportunity to focus on their work, but also to widen their network of contacts and find new potential exhibition venues.
Through the Artist in Residence program, visual artists are invited to Halland, both from Sweden and other countries. The programs are located in different places, tailored based on the artist’s focus and take place in collaboration with, among others, municipalities, cultural institutions and associations.
Art in Halland networks on a regional, national and international basis. Through these different contacts, we stay up-to-date with the evolution of contemporary art and also create possibilities for new partnerships and ventures.
The resource centre organises courses and further education for different target groups. We are keen to highlight the opportunities and possibilities with art to the children and youngsters and give them the right to build up their own creativity and establish contact with professional artists.
